Oh So Oscars

Hilary Swank
I adore red carpet season and especially Oscars night.  There is a palpable buzz and excitement on the red carpet, probably more so than for any other Hollywood event during the year.  The starlets grace us with their prescence in some of the most stunning gowns and accessories, some of which are fresh off the couture runways from Paris.  This year's amazing outfits were as breathtaking as expected and there were definite trends towards all shades of red, nude tones, jewel and berry shades amongst the gowns.

Leading in the style stakes were Hilary Swank (above) in sequinned and feathered Gucci, Amy Adams in midnight blue L'Wren Scott and the very pregnant Natalie Portman in flowing Rodarte.  These ladies all chose incredible gowns that truly suit them and accesorised them perfectly.  Congratulations are most definitely due to the talented Miss Portman for winning the Best Actress Oscar for Black Swan, capping off an impressive amount of wins for her this awards season.

Looking every bit her regal self, Helen Mirren shone in Vivienne Westwood Couture, which while being totally age appropriate, really shone on her.  Going for full on sparkle was Mandy Moore in dazzling Monique L'Huiller, her scarlet lips and simple jewellery were the perfect accent to her delightful look.  I also adored Reese Witherspoon's cute and sassy sixties inspired Armani Prive outfit, the high pony and heavy winged eyeliner were a rather inspired touch.

Sandra Bullock was absolutely radiant in scarlet Vera Wang, her outfit is so elegant and sophisticated.  I love that she went for the less is more approach with her accessories and let her incredible dress take the spotlight.  The youngest starlet on the red carpet this year was 14 year old Hailee Steinfeld looking cute, fresh and age appropriate in sparkly Marchesa, her outfit has a real fairy tale princess feel which suits her perfectly.

Complimenting her cute blonde pixie haircut was Michelle Williams in silver embellished Chanel, that dress looks sensational on her and really elegant.  Going for simple but very va va voom was Jennifer Lawrence in figure hugging Calvin Klein, she looks probably a tad casual for the Oscars but it has to be said that dress hugs her amazing curves in all the right places.  Rounding out my favourite looks would have to be Celine Dion, who we haven't seen on the Oscars red carpet in years.  She has also kept her look simple in shiny Armani Prive but she looks sophisticated and that showstopping Van Cleef and Arpels necklace really makes the look.

Another wonderful red carpet awards season is over for now, but it has certainly been an impressive one.  So many astonishingly beautiful outfits, glamourous starlets and exciting moments.  Congratulations to all the winners and their truly outstanding achievements, fashion was also the winner on the night.
